    Ok I have a 91 civic sedan with a b18a with a turbo kit. My problem is I have the down pipe on the passanger side and I have a 99 civic radiator in there and no matter what I do it sticks out of the top or bottom ( alot) and hit the down pipe. The radiator mesures like 15w x 18H. Is there any where I can get a radiator built CHEAP to the size I need, or does anyone know of any cars in the junkyard that has a small radiator that could help me out. The measurements I would need is something like 12 to 13 wide X 14 to 15 H. Any help would be great.

    cut the bottom mounting tabs off (radiator core support), make some new ones for the bottom. you may have the cut the front of the front crossmember to allow for room, (or go for the full race traction bars, just an option... pretty expensive too...)
